Saw the hotel, took some pictures and looked for the plaque in a picture we saw on trip advisor. The plaque is 1401 Wilson street in Alexandria where the secret mtg took place with deep throat in a parking garage.

If you are under 40, you likely can recall recent scandals or controversies ending with "gate" (eg, Bridgegate, Nannygate, Travelgate, Troopergate, Deflategate), all deriving their ending from the intrigue,...More

There's really not much to see. A marker. You don't get a sense of any history without additional research on your own.
